If you were this photograph, where would you be, and who would have taken you?

LostArtFilter: Does this image sound familiar to anyone? It's a photograph of someone blowing into one end of a rolled up newspaper, and there is a bouquet of flowers emerging from the other end. I'm pretty sure the background is just white. [more inside]

A Silver Rose

I would like to spray paint a whole rose with metallic silver paint. The intention is that it will encase the rose, fully retaining its pretty rose shape for at least a few days, if not permanently. In reality the rose will probably wilt, or otherwise warp, leaving an ugly silver mess. I don't know. Any suggestions on how to get the results as imagined?

Wedding arrangements in Chicago

The wonderful, fantastic, exhilarating news is that we're getting married in Chicago in June. The less-good news is that we live in different cities, neither of which is anywhere near Chicago. So we could use a little help putting together the pieces, like florists, photographers, DJs, and oh yeah someone to actually do the marrying. And we've like got four months to do it in.

Looking for reputable flower merchant.

So, it's almost Valentine's Day, and I'm in need of some help, vis a vis flowers. I need to send some flowers to a beautiful woman in another city and I need suggestions for a reputable dealer of flower power. The city in question is Vancouver, so I suppose if someone had intimate knowledge of the city they could recommend a specific place there, but otherwise an online store that you've used before (with good results) would suffice.

Oh please / oh oh oh please / grow for me ( -- from "Little Shop of Horrors")

I'd like to get a small-to-medium-sized potted plant to liven up my dreary work cubicle. It won't receive any sunlight at all and will be exposed to 24 hours a day of pinkish fluorescent lighting and the glare of several computers and TV screens. The best it can hope for is fresh water and fertilizer/nutrient supplements as needed. Other than those boring and ubiquitous bamboo sticks, what else is there? Bonus points if it flowers or smells nice.

Does this blooming thing exist?

I'm looking for seeds for an indoor flower or plant that will grow in about 2 to 3 months. Ideally, this plant should require very little space, not be seasonal, and be easy to grow for amateurs like myself. Does my ideal plant exist on this planet, or am I being completely unreasonable? Any ideas?

Are these bluebells?

MeFi botanists: These are buebells, right, blooming now until June? (Yes, that IS my cat Widget on the scanner trying to eat them.) But what are these, fallen from a tree or plant on the NE Ohio shore of Lake Erie? (Pic is aprox 200% actual size.) Does anyone else have any plants you need to identify? Are there any good books or online flora resources you recommend that allow a person to maybe search by, say, "flowers-blue" and then narrow the search, perusing images? Thanks.

Gardening for the newbie

I want to buy some gardening supplies and tools for my partner to use on his house. There is currently NO landscaping, so I assume he will be putting in everything from bushes to flowers to plants. I, unfortunately, know next to nothing about this process, so I am hoping some of you could point me in the correct direction as far as stores and implements.

Cut Rose Care

I just bought a dozen roses on my lunch break. Can't leave for work for 5 more hours. While I'm storing them in a glass of water, should I also snip the ends? Then do it again after surprising my sweetheart? Or just let them sit in peace?

A Rose By Any Other Name

its my understanding that stuff generally feels smells tastes or looks good because it benefits our survival. Fats and sugars have energy. Sex continues the species. Good interior design makes you feel safe - etc etc.

So why do flowers 'smell good'?

My spouse got flowers from someone else on Valentine's Day.

Let's suppose it's Valentine's Day, and your partner - to whom you are married and with whom you live - receives a beautiful big bunch of flowers.... from someone else. Do you care? Would it cause difficulties with your partner or might you even be flattered that other people are attracted to them? Would you wonder who it's from? If you suspected who it was from, how might you react towards them?
